The first FineCat symposium on catalysis for fine chemicals will be held in Palermo, Italy, on April 18-19, 2012. The deadline for both oral and poster abstracts is 10th March and the symposium will be held in Steri Palace, hall of Palermo’s University Rectorate, one of the most beautiful medieval buildings in Palermo!
The symposium will cover some of the latest developments in catalysis science and technology within one of the symposium themes:
Green catalytic processes
Organo- and biocatalysis
Asymmetric heterogeneous catalysis
Atom Economy and clean technology
Green reaction media
Heterogeneous catalysis under flow conditions
The meeting aims to provide an opportunity for contact between academic and industrial researchers, manufacturers and users of solid catalysts for the efficient and selective production of fine chemicals.
The symposium ties in well with the 2011 themed issue of Catalysis Science & Technology, Heterogeneous catalysis for fine chemicals, and the journal is proud to offer a Catalysis Science & Technology poster prize.
